Cozy barn, cozy beds!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Wild Ram barn with three girlfriends this past weekend. Lee was extremely communicative and efficiently answered all of our questions prior to arriving, such as whether or not we would need to bring certain cooking items. Upon arriving at the barn, we were pleasantly surprised by how cozy chic it is--we each remarked that the pictures don't do the place justice. The living room space is giant, and the ceiling on the bathroom and kitchen aren't as low as we were anticipating. The shower boasts double showerheads and could accommodate a small family... it was amazing! We used the propane grill the first night to make pizzas and the second night to make chicken. It functioned wonderfully. The hottub was also easy to operate and provided us with some warmth and fun both evenings. NOW, MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE FREAKING BEDS. Wow. If we hadn't had plans to go to wineries and play games and such, I think we each could have stayed in our beds the entire 48 hours. The beds are like clouds from heaven. The wifi worked well the entire time and everything was pretty clean. The barn was close enough to town and the wineries to get to each of them pretty quickly via cab, but secluded enough to really take in the beauty of the hill country. Our only complaint was that we wished there were more pots and pans to cook more than one thing on the stove at a time and that there were sponges to clean all the dishes since that is the duty of the barn guests prior to leaving (perhaps there were some hiding somewhere, we didn't ask). Thanks, Lee for being such a wonderful host at such a great property.

A Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved the Red Barn Guest House. The inside is absoultely and I mean absoultely beautifully decorated. The bed was amazing - like sleeping at the Waldorf Astoria! Not to mention how close we were to town and every winery. The hot tub was a plus during the late evening and early mornings. I "HIGHLY" recommend this property for a couple or two couples. The layout of the property is beautiful, tranquil, and very serene. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay during our trip to Fredricksburg. Lee (the owner) knows exactly what discerning couples want and need!!! Thank you for the wonderful accomadations. Sincerely, Sonya Taylor

We had a girls trip to Fredricksburg and stayed at the Red Barn. The beds are extremely comfortable, the house is very clean and comfortable. We also really enjoyed the use of the hot tub. Lee was very nice and ready to answer any questions or help in any way. I highly recommend this home for your visit. We will be back.

Great property close to town

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a long family weekend in the Red Barn and loved the history of the place, its proximity to Main st (10 min drive) and the hot tub under the stars! Other mentions should go to the large spacious bedrooms and super comfy beds which were a welcome relief after a long haul flight from UK. Lee was a perfect host providing us with some thoughtful suggestions on where to eat/visit and would text to make sure we were satisfied whilst also respecting our privacy. Would recommend the Red Barn to anyone considering visiting Fredericksburg

Property was nice. Lots of space (land). It still close to town.

  • 3 of 5

Overall, on a scale of 1-10, I rate a 7. Biggest drivers that pull down from the 10.

• One bathroom.

• Low ceilings in shower and kitchen. If you are 6'3" be aware or wear a helmut

• Surveilence camera on the door make me uneasy. Bring tape to cover the camera while you are there.

• No guests allowed without prior approval. I asked and was granted approval but really?

• Price was high but obviously within what the market would bear.


• Clean

• The Fredricksburg / Wine Tour experience was great. Highly recommend a tour guide / driver
